Summary: While I am a Prime customer who buys tons of stuff from Amazon, I bought my Asus Eee PC 1025c slightly used from a geek. This is just to let you know what is possible. In my configuration, I love it. I should mention that I am a tablet owner, but I think a small PC has it all over a tablet for real work. First of all, the 1025c does take 2gb of compatible memory. My chip is made by Crucial.
Summary: I ordered this netbook from everest online and they sent me the wrong model. Their response was that they're "all the same" so they basically just send you whatever they want, not what you ordered. They are all similar, but they are not the same. The x101 that they sent me does not allow the RAM to be upgraded like the 1025 does. Now I am completely screwed because I needed this for a trip I leave on in 3 days.
Summary: After having the entire process completed and thinking my product was on the way, (international shipping) a few days before the stated delivery time I received and email indicating the product was out of stock! This was supposed to be a Christmas present so imagine my state of mind when I realised a few days before Christmas that it was NOT on it's way and never will be because it was out of stock. Not good at all!
Summary: I rate this 4 stars because it is affordable, upgradable, and the battery life is outstanding. It is not THAT hard to upgrade the RAM. Watch the Youtube video, it shows you exactly how to do it. I used this RAM, Patriot Signature 2 GB PC3-10600 DDR3 1333MHz Notebook Memory PSD32G13332S, and it worked. Why Asus didn't give you a handy little door, I don't know. Very poor design in that regard. Other than that, it is a very nice netbook for the price.
Summary: This netbook is more capable than I thought. But I did upgraded the RAM and everything runs smoothly. Don't have the best keyboard, speaker, screen etc etc... but very decent product for its price! However, my netbook makes continual weird noises. It isn't loud and I'm not really bothered by that! I would say this budget netbook lives up to my expectation although it has a little flaw.
Summary: Purchased this netbook because I am constantly on the go. After a few months of owning the Asus 1025C, I am in love with it! It's a great laptop to complete homework, such as research papers. Not the fastest computer, but well worth the investment. Purchased mine at WalMart. Wish I would of known it was on Amazon, it's cheaper here.
